For our final gathering, we invited families to join us to hear about and celebrate the wonderful work the girls have been doing for the last 12 weeks. They described books and poems we shared, and the girls read some of their own work in addition to some of their favorite authors. It was great to hear them excited to share and discuss their thoughts with everyone. The moms who were able to attend were delighted to see their daughters so engaged and enthusiastic about reading and writing and thinking. We enjoyed snacks, and I sent the girls off with mini-notebooks and pencils so they can write their observations and ideas wherever they go!
